You can call me Tom.

I'm making an RTS game. After more that a year of planning my first serious game, I'm almost done with the planning. I'll probably make the game with Game Maker ( because I'm not familiar enough with any programming languages. One of my hobbies is making MIDIs ( and MP3s (, so I'm going to make the music myself.
I can record the sounds with a microphone (when I get one) or use my MP3-making program. What I need someone else to do for me is...the graphics.

Welcome Tom! I hope you came here for more than game graphics, though I can help you on those if you wish. I have experience with them, Though I already do graphics for a personal project as well as another "company" online. I like to offer help anywhere I can, even if I can't afford it. Helping too much would be my second worse vice (right after spending too much money) XD

I only have true experience up to 16 bit though, and not with Gamemaker... edits or scratches.

I don't have my archive here, but I can link a few samples for you.

Some Prop samples
An Enemy sprite sample

Aeeeeh! Tommy, why didn't you tell them you play on the trombone!
You also didn't mention yourself being a fan of Motoi Sakuraba's work!
What is it you made here, an introduction, or a recruitment post?!

Yes, people, in case it is not obvious, me and tommy know each other.
I even made his avatar for him... Yes, well, he asked me for "anything with glasses"!

So, tommy! Welcome to this, ugh, place! I hope you get what you are looking for...
And even more, I hope you join my god damned RP this time, you lazy bum you!

Speaking of which, Skybait!
I'd remove those links if I were you! They are too much of a... How should I put it?
Oh, right, a "giveaway".
Especialy the first one.

I thought you wanted ME to add more about myself!

I was going to add more info about myself...

Things I like to do:

- reading books (although I haven't read any during the last year, since I was too busy)

-playing the trombone

-programming (with Game Maker and basic stuff with C) - especially making games (My first game, which is the last game I made, was a simple 2D shooting game)

-composing music (My experience comes from music for real instruments, but since I can't record it, I only write MIDIs - which I convert into MP3s - and stuff for making with Fruity Loops Studio. Since I'm not an expert, I need to hear what I write and learn from my mistakes.)

-In order to gain experience in composing, especially in making music for video games, I listen to RPG soundtracks, most of them are Motoi Sakuraba's work. Yup, I'm a fan of him. Another VGM composer I like is Kenji Ito. I also listened to few film soundtracks.

I haven't seen the samples yet...I'll click on "Submit" first...

Edit (a minute later) : Nice samples...
(The tile size in the RTS game will probably be 32x32 or 48x48 pixels. The height of the people will be 32 / 48 or a bit higher)

Even if you're just part of the graphics/game community, all's well. Anybody fits in anywhere, so if you feel like discussing anything else, don't think you're restricted to your preferred areas, okay? At the very least, I know this forum's starting to diversify ever the more! ^^

Yes. I would like to welcome you to the Gamer Hang. I'm sure you're game will be a good one. Good luck with making it.

Greetings Tom, I'd like to join everyone else in welcoming you to the GamerHang.

Creating a game? That's pretty neat, I've attempted making games before but I have 0 programing knowledge. I can't wait to get more info on it.

Ah, reading. My first love. Unfortunately, I haven't had any good books to read in a long time, not since Harry Potter 7. Any suggestions, anyone?
I also tried programming once. Couldn't do it, the codes just kept on slipping out of my head. I couldn't even get a functional random-number generator going, let alone a game, even a simple one. Too bad, since I have so... many... ideas... *blach!*
I can't say I know those composer names - any chance you could tell me some games they've done work on? I may not have heard of them either, but there's a higher likelihood of recognition if we try... Forum Index -> Formal Introductions
